Question about Nissan Quest
The other night I got a ticket for my license plate light being out. Although my license plate is out I believe I was stopped because I was passing out my business brochures to companies and the cop wanted to see what I was up to. Well, I still have to fix my license plate lights but I do not find a blown fuse in the fuse box. Any ideas? I did replace the 2 license plate lights but nothing. HELP!
The licence plate lights are in the same line as your tail light wiring assembly. I assume your tail lights are working or you would have got a ticket for that. The wire is either cut, broken or unhooked from the tail light wires (which usually are brown). If you can not find the problem, you can always run a new wire to the tail light wire from your licence plate wire. Then they should work.
Your other problem is that the license plate ground is rusty & not grounding, which would also not let them work, so you should probably check that first. Rick

Sounds like you may have a wiring issue. I would cut the wires at the tag lamps, leaving enough to splice in new ones. Then pull one of your tail light assemblies out and, using a test light which is available from most parts stores for $5-10, figure out which wire is hot with the parking lights on. Splice a wire from there to your tag lamp socket. Then splice the other wire to the ground circuit at the tail lamp or find a good ground to wrap it around somewhere else (usually just about anything metal). Just find a bolt somewhere, back it out a bit and stick some of the stripped wire behind it at tighten it back up.
